In a recently discovered video from a speech in 2010, current Egyptian President Mohammad Morsi calls Barack Obama a liar and urges more Jew-hatred.
Barack Obama helped Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood take control of Egypt during the Arab Spring protests.
The Times of Israel has more on the hate-filled speech.
Additional statements made by Egypt’s President Mohammed Morsi before entering office, in which he accuses US President Barack Obama of lying in his 2009 Cairo speech and urges Muslims “to nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred towards those Zionists and Jews,” were published Thursday by media watchdog group MEMRI.

“One American president after another — and most recently, that Obama — talks about American guarantees for the safety of the Zionists in Palestine. [Obama] was very clear when he uttered his empty words on the land of Egypt. He uttered many lies, of which he couldn’t have fulfilled a single word, even if he were sincere — which he is not,” Morsi says in the latest clips, referring to Obama’s 2009 speech, delivered at Cairo University.
Morsi made the remarks in a speech in 2010 when he was a leading Muslim Brotherhood figure. These and other remarks were revived when an Egyptian TV show aired them last week to highlight and mock Morsi’s current policies.
